UniProt functional annotation for P80376

UniProt code: P80376.

Organism: Thermus thermophilus (strain HB8 / ATCC 27634 / DSM 579).
Taxonomy: Bacteria; Deinococcus-Thermus; Deinococci; Thermales; Thermaceae; Thermus.
Function: Located on the upper part of the platform of the 30S subunit, where it bridges several disparate RNA helices of the 16S rRNA. Forms part of the Shine-Dalgarno cleft in the 70S ribosome, where it interacts both with the Shine-Dalgarno helix and mRNA.
Subunit: Part of the 30S ribosomal subunit. Interacts with proteins S7 and S18. Binds to the C-terminus of IF-3; however exactly how IF-3 interacts with the 30S subunit is unclear. May contact the C-terminus of Era.
Mass spectrometry: Mass=13583; Method=MALDI; Range=2-129; Evidence={ECO:0000269|PubMed:16287167};
Similarity: Belongs to the ribosomal protein S11P family. {ECO:0000305}.
